We can't imagine a more precious time than those five thrilling days with our grandson, sharing new experiences with him at a time when he is so ready to learn and still not ready to bust out independently.

I can't say enough about this program and Road Scholar. Everyone was so helpful and my grandson had the time of his life. He was the oldest boy there and he was able to fit in with all the other boys and they were interacting from the first day until the last. We both learned so much and had a wonderful coordinator and teacher. I want to go again.

What a fun and educational trip! Kudos to the NAU team, especially group leader Joanna, for a well-organized program for kids and grandparents alike. My grandson loved it and enjoyed all the new friends he met.

My grandson and I loved the program. He was interested in every aspect of the program and was excited about each day's activities. All the children got along extremely well from the first day. The gathered at breakfast each morning and interacted together and were still going strong at the end of the evenings. It was an excellent learning opportunity a well as a bonding experience for Andrew and me. We look forward to our next Intergenerational program!
